STAMFORD, Conn. The Stamford Youth Foundation will hold its annual elementary and middle school cheerleading exhibition Nov. 12 at Stamford High School.
The elementary school event will be at 2:30 p.m., and the middle schoolers will perform at 6 p.m. All proceeds help to fund the foundation's programs. Tickets will be available at the door for $12.
The exhibition features all elementary and middle school cheerleading programs from the city. The Stamford Youth Foundation is dedicated to the development, advancement and exposition of youth cheerleading. The show will present each cheerleading squad, performing a choreographed three-minute routine in addition to individual skills. As in past years, more than 3,000 spectators are expected to attend the two events.
"It's a day of pure excitement for these kids as they showcase what they have been working on all season in front of a huge crowd cheering them on," Stamford Youth Foundation cheerleading president Krissy Carboni said. "SYF cheer coaches are certified instructors that continuously challenge our cheerleaders to reach a more advanced level of skill to better prepare them for the high school level."
Stamford Youth Foundation is a nonprofit volunteer organization and receives no direct financial assistance from the city of Stamford. Programs are funded through participant fees, donations and grants as well as other fundraising efforts. The foundation was founded in May 2001 by Marc Lyons and a team of Stamford residents to develop new middle school football and cheerleading programs. The success of these programs inspired the team to pursue additional programs.
